The Centre for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Studies, FSS forges a new platform for research collaboration and academic exchanges on the Greater Bay Area studies. In the upcoming year, its research agenda will mainly focus on the issue of Big Data and Public Administration Innovation: Promoting Public Administration Cooperation and Innovation in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA).
Big data and artificial intelligence are changing the way we understand the world and global governance. Whether spontaneous or forced, governments at all levels from the central to the local levels are innovating and reforming the public administration system to adapt to the new technological revolution. The application of big data technology to public administration is not only a technical issue, but also a fundamental change in governance, government structures, and public administration methods.
